After Miley Cyrus recently opened up about having relationships with both men and women, rumors began swirling about her possible relationship with Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell.
Stella Maxwell, who is a constant presence on Miley Cyrus’ social media accounts, is a 24-year-old model from New Zealand. Maxwell has donned the cover of such magazines as Elle, Vogue, Glamour and just this year she became an official Victoria’s Secret Angel.
To add to the rumors, recent video and photos have surfaced of the two interacting intimately in between takes of Miley’s new music video in Hollywood. Miley can be seen wearing a sequined gold mini-dress and knee-length boots, while Stella is more casually dressed in a denim jacket.
It seems that the confidence of the trans-genders Miley has been working with through her Happy Hippy Foundation, may have rubbed off on her, as it was evident both Stella and Miley were aware their affection for one another was being photographed. But then again Miley has been one to follow what she felt was right and didn’t worry what others thought so good for her.
While neither party has yet confirmed it, the photos and videos of the two kissing and holding each other definitely add fuel to the rumor that Stella is in fact Miley’s new beau.
Donald Trump is facing further backlash, but this time surrounding his stance on what he considers a “traditional marriage.” Former Star Trek star George Takei, recounts a sit-down he had with Donald in the past to MSNBC’s The Last Word, where George tried to challenge Donald’s views.
George recalls that Donald was telling him that he had just returned from a gay marriage of two of his good friends. However, when George asked how he could attend this, yet not support marriage equality, Donald simply replied that he was “for traditional marriage.”
George challenged Donald’s own situation, being married three times, and how this didn’t reflect a “traditional marriage.”
Unfortunately, George explained that the two of them decided to agree to disagree.
George continues to be an activist for marriage equality and with the recent Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage, it seems George’s side of the disagreement (equality for all partnerships) is the one taking bigger strides forward.
With such polar opinions, maybe it was a good thing George’s stint on The Celebrity Apprentice wasn’t very long.
The series, according to the theme song, featured “good ole boys” that often got in a little bit of trouble with the law. The decision to pull the series comes in the aftermath of the racially motivated shooting at the Church in Charleston in June. Following the violence, there has been an outbreak of public pressure to remove the Confederate Flag from public grounds. Evidently this removal is extending to television and popular culture.
The Dukes of Hazard featured The General Lee, which is the name of the car the Duke boys drove, and it famously displayed a painted-on Confederate Flag on its roof.
While the major boards all seem to be agreeing with such decisions, the stars of Dukes of Hazard have been expressing conflicting opinions.
Actor Ben Jones, who played Cooter, took to Facebook to explain that he will continue to carry and sell the flag at the Dukes of Hazard museum he runs and owns. He explains to fans that he feels that “Hazzard Nation” understands that the Confederate Flag on top of the General Lee made a statement of rural south values – those of “courage, family and good times.”
In addition, Dukes star John Schneider also defended the shows use of the flag. He told The Hollywood Reporter that in certain applications the flag might be used in a racial sense, but certainly not on the Dukes. Boldly adding: “If the flag was a symbol of racism, then Bo and Luke and Daisy and Uncle Jesse were a pack of wild racists and that could not be further from the truth.
